10.0 Wonderful
Pros:This hotel has an amazing design esthetic and uses high end finishes and products on the property and in the hotel rooms. The beds and linens were so incredibly comfortable I would have been happy hanging out in the room than braving the heat of a summer day in Austin. The valet was great and very easy to use. When were ready to pick up our car we would just send a text and the car would be ready within minutes. We never had to wait which was really nice. On the grounds of the hotel there were two restaurants, one of which served as room service, an excellent coffee shop and a few very nice boutiques.
Cons:I had a great time and was very happy with our stay.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:They were supernice to my 4 year old daughter. They upgraded us to a suite because she wanted to take a bath in a bathtub and actually went to a store nearby to get her bubblebath shampoo without us requesting it: Speechless.
